Set sail for love in this sparkling new adventure in #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander’s Lady Travelers Society series.

Harry Armstrong has spent years in Egypt, recovering relics and disregarding rules. Now he’s back in England with a new title and a new purpose: penning his exploits. But his efforts are overshadowed by London’s favorite writer about Egypt—a woman they call The Queen of the Desert, of all things. Worse, her stories—serialized in newspapers and reprinted in books—are complete rubbish.

Miss Sidney Honeywell didn’t set out to deceive anyone. It’s not her fault readers assumed her Tales of a Lady Adventurer in Egypt were real! Admitting her inadvertent deception now would destroy her reputation and her livelihood. But when the Earl of Brenton challenges her to travel to Egypt to prove her expertise, accompanied by his dashing, arrogant nephew, what choice does she have but to pack her bags?

With the matchmaking founders of the Lady Travelers Society in tow, Harry is determined to expose Sidney’s secret. But the truth might not be as great a revelation as discovering that love can strike even the most stubborn of hearts.

My Thoughts:

I have to say the beginning of The Lady Travelers Guide to Deception with an Unlikely Earl started out extremely strong. The banter between Harry and Sidney was amazing. I had a lot of fun reading that part. However, there was a loll in story when in the middle. There were some of Sidney’s character that drove me nuts.  Yet, she was still a fun character. Her entourage was a bit kooky, but still lovable, and they had felt Sidney's best interest at heart. Harry was a bit of a prig through most of the story, but he felt he had the right. However, does pick up towards the end, and there were a few twist on turns toward the end. 

Overall, The Lady Travelers Guide to Deception with an Unlikely Earl was a pretty good read. I had a lot of fun at the beginning and the end, and the middle was a little rough. However, it all balances out, as long as you plow through the middle. Victoria does write fun, lovable characters. This series has been a lot fun and I can't wait to see what the next book has in store.
